Help for the archive contributions

Oscar Marquez [GTS]

Hi Octavers,

I want now to reorganize the archive of contributions for octave 2.x
and need your help:

Please, if you have a function file to the archive put the following
two tags anywhere on the preamble:


## Description:
## Author:

The first tag contents the short description of the function, the
second tag the name and email address from the autor.

Example:

## usage:  H = hurst (x)

## Estimates the Hurst parameter of sample x via the rescaled range
## statistic. If x is a matrix, the parameter is estimated for every
## single column.

## Description: Estimates the Hurst parameter of sample x
## Author: Friedrich.Leisch <[hidden email]>


function H = hurst (x)

  if (nargin != 1)
    usage ("hurst (x)");
  endif

  if is_vector (x)
    x = reshape (x, length (x), 1);
  elseif !is_matrix (x)
    error ("hurst:  x must be a vector or a matrix");
  endif

  [xr xc] = size (x);

  s = std (x);
  w = cumsum (x - mean (x));
  RS = (max(w) - min(w)) ./ s;
  H = log (RS) / log (xr);
 
endfunction
